About Elizabeth Irwin Harding (McGavock)

Elizabeth Irwin McGavock was born 1818 to Randal and Sarah Rodgers McGavock. She grew up at the family’s Carnton Plantation in Franklin, Tennessee. On January 2, 1840 Elizabeth McGavock married William Giles Harding. Of Elizabeth’s nine pregnancies only two children would survive into adulthood, two daughters, Selene and Mary.

She was considered to be a woman of strong will and it was said to be her strong Christian faith in the First Presbytarian Church that would see her hard and emotional times. During the Civil War, while her husband was imprisoned in Michigan, Elizabeth defended the properties, kept the plantation running, and the needs of her family and the servants on the property. It was thought that this unselfishness and devotions to others without concern for her own health contributed to her decline and eventually her death on August 8th 1867, at the age of 48.
